Your Master's degree in Architecture / Environmental Design at the School of Architecture at Hochschule Bremen is oriented towards professional tasks in the fields of planning, design and architecture. Your scientific analysis, creative, spatial-plastic and technical-constructive design and at the same time the flexibility of thinking, the ability to reflect and the ability to develop your own attitudes and conceptions are actively promoted by the modules and lecturers.
In Bremen, the Master's programme thereby follows a concept that also takes into account the context of architecture. Through practical projects related to specific topics, you establish social references, order influences and conditions, interpret and evaluate in order to facilitate decision making and present conceptual proposals.
Context-related architecture is playing an increasingly important role in the interrelationship between a highly mechanised and economised environment and its inhabitants (including building restoration, resource-saving construction, low energy consumption). With its part-time Master's programme in Architecture/Environmental Design, the School of Architecture Bremen focuses on the relationship between architecture and the environment in terms of social and building culture as well as technology and economics.
If you are interested in this profiling and / or believe you can improve your career opportunities in this field, this is the right degree programme for you.
The Master of Arts degree enables admission to the Chambers of Architects in the Länder of the Federal Republic of Germany. It also fulfils the requirements of the European Professional Qualifications Directive (Directive 2013/55/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 November 2013) and the UNESCO/UIA Charter for the Education of Architects. It thus qualifies for worldwide recognition as an architect.
Your Master's programme in Architecture / Environmental Design is divided into five modules per semester comprising courses in:
The content structure takes into account overarching thematic focal points in the following order:
You must choose each specialisation once in the course of your studies:
Subject-related, interdisciplinary offerings and key qualifications. At least two elective modules must be completed in the area of subject-related specialisation.
Generously proportioned workspaces are available to you throughout your studies at the School of Architecture. Here you will be able to work intensively on your projects and discuss them with fellow students. In the context of so-called ‘round table critique’, you will also receive regular suggestions and criticism from your lecturers and professors.
In addition to the workrooms, you also have access to generously equipped workshop and CAD rooms

Moreover, the School of Architecture Bremen is comprehensively networked with universities in other European as well as non-European countries. This gives you the opportunity – for example, within the framework of the Erasmus programme – to gain valuable international experience. And we also cultivate a welcome culture for the many international students who come as guest students to the School of Architecture every semester. The person to contact for all questions regarding stays abroad is Prof. Klaus Schäfer.
